FAMILIES CROSSING BORDER TRUMP TO ANNOUNCE IRAN
DECISION ON TUESDAY
WELCOME TO WILL NOW BE SEPARATED
METRO.US
JOE PANTORNO, SPORTS EDITOR
Baseball is great when the New York
Yankees and Boston Red Sox are good.
It’s even better when they’re both
good at the same time. Luckily for all
of us, the Yanks and BoSox have the
two best records in baseball this
year as they square off for a
monstrous three-game series
at Yankee Stadium beginning
Tuesday night. So sit back,
relax, and don’t be surprised
if a few boxing matches break
out on the field and in the
stands. Read more on pages
22-23 and at metro.us.

The administration of
President Donald Trump will
increase criminal prosecutions
of parents entering the United
States illegally and place their
children in protective custody as
part of efforts to tighten immigration enforcement, according to a
Department of Homeland Security
(DHS) official. The policy formalizes plans that have been under
discussion for more than a year.
Shortly after Trump took office,
pledging a hard line against illegal
immigration, border arrests fell.
Apprehensions, however, are again
on the rise and reaching levels
seen during the administration of
former President Barack Obama,
frustrating Trump. Under the new
policy, parents caught crossing
the border illegally will both be
separated from their children and
criminally prosecuted. “Those
apprehended will be sent directly
to federal court under the custody
of the U.S. Marshals Service, and
their children will be transferred to
the custody of Health and Human
Services,” the DHS official said
in an email. In remarks released
Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said, “If you are smuggling a
child, then we will prosecute you
and that child will be separated
from you as required by law.”

President Donald Trump
said he would announce a
decision on the future of the
Iran nuclear deal on Tuesday as European countries piled pressure on
Washington to remain in the 2015
agreement. Trump has threatened
to withdraw from the deal, which
provided Iran with relief from
economic sanctions in exchange
for limiting its uranium enrichment
capacity, unless European signatories to the accord fix what he has
called its shortcomings. “I will be
announcing my decision on the
Iran Deal tomorrow from the White
House at 2:00pm,” Trump said in
a Twitter post on Monday. Trump
has until May 12 to decide whether
to reintroduce U.S. sanctions on
Iran, which would deal a heavy
blow to the agreement. Under the
agreement with the United States,
France, Germany, Britain, Russia
and China, Iran strictly limited
uranium enrichment capacity to
try to show that it was not trying
to develop atomic bombs. In
exchange, Iran received relief
from economic sanctions. Iranian
President Hassan Rouhani hinted
on Monday that Iran could remain
in the accord even if the U.S.
dropped out, but said that Tehran
would resist U.S. pressure to limit
its influence in the Middle East.

US EMBASSY ROAD SIGNS
GO UP IN JERUSALEM
SENATORS HAVE CONCERNS
ON T-MOBILE/SPRINT DEAL

U.S. Embassy road signs
went up in Jerusalem
on Monday before next
week’s opening of the mission in
accordance with President Donald
Trump’s recognition of the city as
Israel’s capital. Trump says he is
making good on U.S. legislation
and presidential pledges dating
back decades. Other world powers
have not done so, sidestepping
one of the thorniest disputes
between Israel and the Palestinians, who want their own state
with East Jerusalem as the capital.
Workmen installed the signs, in
English, Hebrew and Arabic, along
roads leading to a U.S. consulate
building in Jerusalem that will be
remodeled as the embassy when it
is formally relocated from Tel Aviv
on May 14. “This is not a dream.
It is reality. I am proud and moved
to have hung this morning the
first new signs that were prepared
for the U.S. Embassy,” Jerusalem
Mayor Nir Barkat wrote on Twitter.
Israel captured East Jerusalem
from Jordanian control in the 1967
Middle East war and annexed it in
a move not recognized internationally. “This [embassy] move is not
only illegal but will also thwart the
achievement of a just and lasting
peace …” Palestinian negotiator
Saeb Erekat said in a statement.
Sens. Amy Klobuchar,
Elizabeth Warren and other
Democratic lawmakers
expressed “serious concerns” on
Monday about T-Mobile US, Inc’.s
plan to buy rival Sprint Corp.,
focusing on the planned deal’s
effect on lower-cost wireless
plans, Klobuchar’s office said in a
press statement. In a letter sent to
the Justice Department’s antitrust
chief, Makan Delrahim, and Federal Communications Commission
Chairman Ajit Pai, the senators
said that they worried that the
deal between the No. 3 and No. 4
wireless service providers would
lead to higher prices for consum-
ers. “T-Mobile and Sprint have led
the way in offering wireless products and service options that are
more appealing to lower-income
consumers, including no contract
plans, prepaid and no credit check
plans, and unlimited text, voice,
and data plans,” the lawmakers
wrote. While AT&T and Verizon
dominate the U.S. wireless market
overall, T-Mobile is the most
popular among customers who
make less than $75,000 per year,
and Sprint’s prepaid brand Boost
counts 83 percent of its users in
that income range, according
to data from Kagan, S&P Global
Market Intelligence data.

“We believe the response has been high because people historically
haven’t felt empowered
to do anything about the
loud venues — but now
with technology, decibel
meters and tools such as
the SoundPrint app, patrons as well as employees
can show the sound measurements to venue man-
agers and politely request
to lower the background
music a bit,” Scott said.
The reactions from
the businesses listed on
SoundPrint have been
mostly positive as well.
“We want to work with
the restaurants and help
them,” Scott said, adding
that SoundPrint will soon
provide tips on its website.
Scott

businesses
to
reach
out, as Italian restaurant Pepe Giallo did after
finding itself labeled as a
noisy establishment on
SoundPrint.
“It was one of those
things you don’t foresee,”
general manager Abel
Ramirez said.
So Pepe Giallo’s owners worked to find solutions with acoustic expert
Anthony Antonelli of Pinta Acoustic, who installed
an easy, lightweight custom-made BASF foam.
The installation was
done in less than a day,
and staff and diners “noticed right away. It just
changed the mood of the
restaurant,” Ramirez said.
“Before, it was impossible
to talk to a customer,
even when you were
right next to them, and
that completely changed.
When the restaurant is
completely full, it’s now
nice and quiet.”

Here’s how tourism benefits New York City
62.8M
A new report looks at
the impact of tourism on New York
City’s businesses, job
growth and more.
KRISTIN TOUSSAINT
kristin.toussaint@metro.us
New
York
City
is,
obviously, a top destination for tourists — but
what do those visitors
have to offer the city?
Tourism has been
praised as an economy
booster, and a new report
from the Center for an
Urban Future is breaking
down just how tourists
affect New York City. The
report was funded by the
Association for a Better
New York and the Times
Square Alliance.
Over the past two decades, tourism to New
York has increased 90
percent, according to the
report, and in turn, that
growth has spurred hundreds of thousands of jobs.
Throughout the five
boroughs, there are now
more direct jobs in tour-
MORE NYC
TOURISM BY THE
NUMBERS
2017 saw more
tourists visit New
York City than ever
before, with
62.8 million people
having visited here.
Tourists make up 60 percent of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s visitors, according to a new report. ISTOCK
ism, at 291,084, than in
finance, at 268,200.
Though New York is
becoming a burgeoning
tech hub, that sector still
pales in comparison to the
tourism industry, according to the report, since
there are about half as
many tech jobs (128,600)
than those in tourism.
With 91 percent of the
jobs in tourism-focused
industries open to those
with less than a bachelor’s
degree, this has become
an important way for New
Yorkers to find “middleincome” work, the report
argues. That includes
working at a hotel, and
there are 51,000 hotel jobs
citywide.
It’s not just Manhattan
that’s benefitting from
tourists, either. Looking at visa transactions,
the report found that
“We cannot
take tourists
for granted…”

and Elmhurst, visitors
are swiping their cards
for 6 percent of all retail
spending, which totals,
according to the report,
more than $23 million
each year.
A March report from
the mayor’s office noted
that 2017 saw more tourists visit New York City
than ever before, with
62.8 million people having visited here. That was
the eighth year in a row
the number of tourists
increased.
New York City has never “adequately planned”
for 60-plus-million tourists a year, the report said,
and some infrastructure
issues, like overcrowding
and subway delays, can
deter visitors.
Plus, there are growing
negative opinions about
the U.S. due to political
happenings, per several
surveys, meaning New
York City’s tourism might
decline as people plan less
trips to the U.S. in general.
“We cannot take tourists for granted,” Keith
Douglas, managing director of One World Observatory, said in a statement, “and must deliver
on a great guest experience for the price that is
being paid.”
Tourists make up 73
percent of visitors
to the Museum of Modern Art, 70 percent of
visitors to the Whitney
Museum of American
Art and 60 percent of
the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s visitors.
Tourists are responsible for 24 percent of all
Visa transactions at New
York City restaurants and
drinking places.
Tourists account for
18 percent of all Visa
transactions at retail
stores in the city.
Tourists are roughly
70 percent of passengers
at JFK Airport and 50
percent at LaGuardia.
Employment in NYC’s
scenic and sightseeing
transportation industry
has increased by
90 percent since 2000.

NYC’s historic Trinity Church begins
two-year, $98.6 million renovation
While its nave will
be closed, Trinity
Church’s Chapel
of All Saints and
churchyard will
remain open to
visitors and
parishioners alike.
NIKKI M. MASCALI
nikki.mascali@metro.us
For more than 320 years,
Trinity Church Wall Street
has been both a house of
worship and a tourist attraction thanks to notable
permanent residents like
Alexander Hamilton.
But starting Monday,
the nave, or main body
of Trinity Church, will
be closed while the landmarked building begins
a two-year, $98.6 million
renovation. Though the
nave will be closed, New
Yorkers, tourists and
parishioners alike can
still visit the Chapel of
All Saints and Trinity’s
churchyard, which will
remain open during the
work.
With the renovations expected to end
in the spring of 2020,
church services will
take place at St. Paul’s
Chapel just up Broadway. This is not the
first time Trinity
Church’s sister
chapel will serve
as its stand-in
—
parishioners relocated
there
after
the
Great
Fire of 1776
and again in
1839 when
the current
church was
constructed.
The last major renovation of Trinity Church
took place in 1945.
“Rejuvenating Trinity
Church is part of our mission to provide a spiritual
home for lower Manhattan — our parishioners,
neighbors,
workers
and visitors,” said Rev.
Dr. William Lupfer in a
statement. “As a vibrant,
diverse and growing
congregation, we are
excited to undertake
this work so that
future generations
also can cherish
this remarkable
church.”
Trinity Church Wall Street was last renovated in 1945. ALL IMAGES TRINITY CHURCH
WHAT TRINITY CHURCH’S RENOVATIONS WILL ENTAIL
About 2.5 million people
visit Trinity Church each year,
its website said, and when
renovation work is completed
in 2020, they can expect to
see portions of the church
returned to architect Richard
Upjohn’s original 1846 plan.
The chancel will be
restored to its original size,
with an additional 140 seats,
while the interior walls and
ceilings will be painted to
reflect the original stone
design of Upjohn.

Facebook has about 87
million fake profiles based
on real people’s accounts
That’s nearly a 500
percent increase
in just over a year,
and the company is
struggling to cope
with the situation.
MICHAEL MARTIN
letters@metro.us
In its quarterly filings,
Facebook says there are
up to 87 million fake
Facebook profiles on
the social network — up
from 18 million in 2016
— using duplicate photos
and information of real
Facebook users.
Facebook says “episodic spikes” in fakeaccount
creation
in
Indonesia, Turkey and
Vietnam were responsible for the increase. The
Washington Post reported that Facebook
has released opt-in facialrecognition technology
to combat the fraudulent
profiles, but it is not particularly effective: The
program only scans a user’s friends and friendsof-friends network for
fakes.
During Facebook CEO
Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony before Congress
last month, Sen. Chris
Coons (D-CT) told Zuckerberg that friends had
alerted him to a fake
Facebook profile that duplicated Coons’s information and photos and added “a whole lot of Russian
friends.”
“Whoever
created
them had literally just
copied and pasted my
photo from my Senate
page and a whole bunch
of photos from my Facebook pages,” said Coons.
“Isn’t it Facebook’s job to
better protect its users?
And why do you shift the
burden to users to flag
inappropriate
content
and make sure it’s taken
down?”
“It’s clear that this is
an area ... we need to do
a lot better on,” Zuckerberg replied. “Over time,
we’re going to shift in-
creasingly to a method
where more of this content is flagged up front by
AI tools that we develop.”
“It’s kind
of a cop-out
to pretend
there’s some
high-tech
solution
needed
for this.”
Zach Elwood
The company can’t
identify the fake Facebook profiles accurately.
In the meantime,
Facebook is struggling.
When the Post showed
the company a dozen
fake Facebook profiles
copied from one real
user, the company disabled the accounts of the
real person but left the
fake ones in place.
Observers say it’s unclear why a $500 billion
industry-dominating
tech company can’t do
a better job at catching
fakes. Zach Elwood, a
Portland, Oregon-based
writer, tracks counterfeit
Facebook accounts in his

“It appears that sabotaging our health care

after health care dollars
that millions of children
rely on, especially during outbreaks of the flu
and other deadly illnesses,” Sen. Chuck Schumer
said in a statement after
an initial report about
the CHIP proposal.
The senior administration official, speaking to reporters on a
conference call, said the
cuts would not hurt the
program. Of the total
amount, $5 billion came
from an account from
which the money is not
authorized to be spent
under the law, he said.

NY attorney general resigns amid
accusations of physical abuse
New York State Attorney
General Eric Schneiderman resigned on Monday
after allegations of physical abuse by four women
were reported in an
article in The New Yorker
magazine.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo
called for Schneiderman’s resignation
within hours of the
article’s publication.
“In the last several
hours, serious allegations, which I strongly
contest, have been made
against me,” Schneiderman said in a statement.
“While these allegations
are unrelated to my professional conduct or the
operations of the office,
they will effectively prevent me from leading
the office’s work at
this critical time. I
therefore resign my
office, effective at the
close of business on
May 8, 2018.”

The New Yorker reported that four women

who said they had had

Schneiderman said they
had been subjected to
nonconsensual physical
violence.
Reuters has not independently confirmed
the accusations.
“In the privacy of
intimate relationships,
I have engaged in roleplaying and other consensual sexual activity,”
Schneiderman said in a
statement issued by Stu
Loeser & Co. “I have not
assaulted anyone. I have
never engaged in nonconsensual sex, which is
a line I would not cross.”
In his statement late
on Monday, Cuomo said
he would ask a New

to investigate the
accusations against
Schneiderman.
“My personal opinion
is that, given the damning pattern of facts and
corroboration laid out

attorney general, and
for the good of the office, he should resign,”
Cuomo said in his statement. REUTERS

Aries How you help others will make a difference. Don’t neglect your responsibilities when
covering for someone else. Show others the
way, but don’t do the work for them.
Libra Live and learn. Get out and do things that will
open your mind to different cultures and lifestyles.
Someone close to you will feel threatened by your
changing attitude.
Taurus Keep busy and refuse to let your
emotions cause you to overreact. Consider all
angles of a situation and recognize that what
works for you may not work for someone else.
Scorpio Doing things your way can be daunting for
someone who loves you. Share with close friends
and family or include them in your plans to gain support and avoid complaints.
Gemini Listen to sound advice and consider
your options before you make an assumption or take action. Personal change will be
rewarding and help you avoid an argument.
Sagittarius Relationship problems will be based on
hearsay. Make your position clear and share the
changes you want to see happen. Evasiveness will
lead to a misunderstanding or loss.
Cancer Don’t feel obliged to be a follower or
let fear of failure drive your actions. Create
your own opportunities and use your imagination to help you bring your ideas to life.
Capricorn Watch what others do instead of taking
part. Avoid unnecessary arguments or joint ventures
that could be unpredictable. Concentrate on stability
and domestic security. Be the solution.
Leo Keep personal matters in check and don’t
let your emotions hinder your productivity or
get in the way of you meeting your responsibilities.
Aquarius Revisiting the past will help you change
the future. Old friends, memories and experiences
will shape what’s to come. Romance will improve
your attitude and encourage a better personal life.
Virgo Attend functions that will give you
better insight into future trends. Staying on
top of industry requirements or technology
and social media will ensure that you don’t
miss a chance to advance.
Pisces Don’t let sorrow take charge or cause you to
retreat. Strength and courage, along with truth and
integrity, will lead to greater opportunity and better
relationships.

Catholic
mystique
Get all the Young Pope vibes and imagine a woman heading up the Catholic Church at the Met’s new exhibit Heavenly Bodies. ALL PHOTOS BY EVA KIS
Heavenly Bodies is an
Archdiocese-approved
romp through the
Catholic imaginations
of haute couture
designers at the Met.
EVA KIS
eva.kis@metro.us
You don’t have to be religious to be overcome by
the holy spirit of Heavenly
Bodies, the Met’s new exhibit about the influence
of Catholicism on fashion.
Taking over three halls
and the Anna Wintour
Costume Institute at the
Met’s home on Fifth Avenue and stretching up to
the medieval monasteryinspired galleries of the
Cloisters, Heavenly Bodies is the largest show the
Met has ever mounted.
“In order to see this
exhibition,” says Daniel
Weiss, president of the
Met, “one has to embark
on a veritable pilgrimage,
which we think is great.”
A cathedral and a catwalk couldn’t seem more
different — until you
realize they have everything in common, with
a central aisle where the
processional takes place,
customarily set to music.
With styles and ideas
bursting at the seams of
runway shows, the designers of famed houses
like Alexander McQueen,
Valentino and Dior find
themselves in elegant
grandeur inside the Met’s
soaring Byzantine galleries. Blue spotlights
shaped to form the high
windows of a cathedral
illuminate leather, lacy
and low-cut gowns inspired by papal vestments
— but this is no blasphemous display. The exhibit
has the blessing of the
New York Archdiocese.
the Catholic imagination,
the theme of this exhibit,
are all about three things:
truth, goodness and beauty.
“That’s why we have
great schools and universities, to teach the truth;
that’s why we love and
serve the poor, to do good;
and that’s why we’re into
things such as art, poetry,
music, liturgy and, yes,
even fashion, to thank
God for the gift of beauty.”
“Think about it for just
a moment,” beckons Cardinal Timothy Dolan. “It’s

And there’s plenty of
beauty to be had: over 150
pieces of haute couture,
each telling the stories of
their creators. “Most of
the designers featured in
the exhibition were raised
Catholic,” says curator
Andrew Bolton, who spent
two years assembling the
show. “And while many of
them no longer practice
and their relationships to
Catholicism vary considerably, most acknowledge a
significant influence over
their imaginations.”
Catholics live in a
world of art and storytelling, he explains, among

The influence of Catholicism in Heavenly Bodies is both subtle (Alexander McQueen, above) and obvious (Christian Lacroix, right).
er like rosary beads and
stained glass windows,
statues of saints and holy
water. “The Catholic imagination is forged by and
fueled by stories,” he says.
“It operates on a narrative
level, which is where its
power lies and where its
resonance is felt.”
But you don’t need a
theology degree to appreciate them. The designers,
much like pop culture
icons such as Madonna,
craft their own narratives
imbued with their Catholic experiences. Heavenly
Bodies shines brightest
when it defies expectation, such as the lineup of
playful and daring takes
on the nun’s habit by
Dolce & Gabbana, Thom
Browne and newcomer
Cimone. They’re paired
with a row of feminine
takes on the soutane
(the black robe worn by
priests) by the likes of
Dior, John Galliano and
Yves Saint Laurent that
are anything but conservative.
A glorious history
Nothing created by these
designers compares to the
grandeur and pomp of traditional papal vestments.
In the Met’s Costume
Institute awaits an astonishing collection of over
50 cloaks, robes, shoes,
gloves, tiaras and bejeweled mitre on loan from
the Vatican’s own sacristy,
many of them never before seen outside of Italy.
“It would’ve been dazzling for people to see
when people didn’t have
television or movies,”
says Father James Martin,
chaplain of “The Colbert
Report” who consulted on
Heavenly Bodies. “That
was the way they communicated messages about
the Church — it’s really
beautiful.”
That all changed with
the Second Vatican
Council,
the
conference to
move the
church
into the
2 1 s t
century
held
in
the mid1960s,
when “the
Church consciously decided
to let go of some of
those
accoutrements,”
he explains. “Paul VI decided not to get crowned
with the triple tiara, and
that has continued. And
you have someone like
Pope Francis who doesn’t
even wear the red shoes,”
which represent the
blood of Catholic martyrs
all the way back to Christ.
“It’s good; it’s a simplification, and you’re
getting closer to Jesus,”
Martin says. “When you
17
see those triple tiaras, you
think of the old line that
‘it’s a long way from the
carpenter of Nazareth.’”
As for the haute couture, Martin prefers jeans
and a T-shirt when he’s
not on the clock. But he
appreciates the spirit in
which the clothing in
Heavenly Bodies was created, likening it to
the work of other artists like
Michelangelo: “They
both have
an imagination
that’s
inspired
by
the
holy spirit. I
thought it was
beautiful
and
thought-provoking.”
And do make the trip
up to Washington Heights
to complete your pilgrimage. It’s a chance to see
the historical garments
in the context of the architecture where they
would’ve been worn. “To
me,” says Bolton, “it’s the
pinnacle of the exhibition.”
Heavenly Bodies is on view

Health System to provide answers to New Yorkers’ most
pressing medical concerns.
Send us an email at
askmtsinai@metro.us.
We’ll select one question and
publish an answer
every other week.
Sitting at your desk seems
like it might put you at
low-risk for injury; how
much can you possibly
hurt yourself tapping on
a keyboard?
Way more than you
might think, it turns out.
Working in an office involves hours of being sedentary, staring at a screen
and repetitive motion, all
of which can take their
toll on your body. We
talked to Arlette Loeser,
a certified ergonomist
and director of the injury
prevention, ergonomics
and accommodation at
the Mount Sinai Selikoff
Centers for Occupational
Health about how to
make your work setup as
healthy as possible.
What are some common
workplace injuries?
Work-related aches, pains
and injuries can occur
in different areas of the
body including the different areas of the spine,
neck, shoulders, forearms and fingers. Some
examples of musculoskeletal injuries seen at
the Mount Sinai Selikoff
How are these
conditions treated?
Depending on the severity of the condition, treatment could be as conservative as a comprehensive
workstation assessment,
performed by certified ergonomist such as myself.
An assessment identifies
risk factors created by a
poorly set up workstation
and, unhealthy postures
and work habits. Workstation changes can be all
or a part of the treatment.
Occupational health pro-
viders also refer patients
for physical or occupational therapy include
soft-tissue release and
therapeutic modalities,
splints, injections and
sometimes surgery.
Is sitting really the
new smoking?
This headline got the
attention of many who
sit for most of their day.
With a host of studies
looking at sedentary
lifestyle, researchers were
able to identify areas impacted, such as reductions
in insulin sensitivity, net
calorie expenditure and
overall cardiovascular
health. Additionally, we
confirmed concerns related to musculoskeletal
decline leading to pain
and stiffness because,
as one moves less while

How did Smith manage to survive? Weed.

A 2002 study from
Harvard Medical School
and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
in Boston found that
smoking weed increases
a person’s chances of
having a heart attack
within the first hour of
smoking — more than
five times that
of non-smokers.
The reason: Smoking weed increases
the heart rate by
about 40 beats per
minute, according
to lead study author
Dr. Murray Mittleman,
director of cardiovascular epidemiology at Beth

“It also causes the

Ratings, reboots and rumors:
The ‘Roseanne’ effect
The “Roseanne” reboot has
dominated the ratings. ABC
What’s old is new
again as once-retired
shows are rebooted for
the golden age of TV.
HENRIETTA JONES
letters@metro.us
For five weeks running,
the Season 10 “Roseanne” reboot has been a
ratings winner for ABC,
and its knockout success
has television executives
peering into the cupboard trying to figure out
what old network faithful
to dust off next.
In the current political climate, sitcoms seem
to be a form of narrative
currently rumored to be
in development include
a revival of “Mad About
You,” staring Helen Hunt
and Paul Reiser, with
Hunt openly discussing the revival during a
recent appearance on
“The Ellen Show.”
“We’re talking about
how to make it and not
wreck it, because we’re
proud of what we did,”
she told DeGeneres.
Wrecking — and unwrecking — seems to be
a key concern for most
shows returning to the
small screen. “Roseanne” has chosen to
simply ignore the original shambolic Season 9
finale that saw Dan die;
comfort food for audiences, with the ratings
success of reboots like
“Will & Grace” and “Roseanne” indicating viewers
are nostalgic for a time
before the nastiness of
reality TV dominated network schedules.
With 13 episodes on
order, “Murphy Brown”
remains one of the most
highly anticipated reboots of 2018, with star
Candice Bergen and creator Diane English revisiting the series that was
so topical it raised the
criticism of Vice President Dan Quayle at the
time, leaving a strong
cultural legacy.
Other fan favorites
“Will & Grace” chose to
make their finale storyline all a bad dream
— both shows ended up
poking fun at their own
narrative flip-floppery.
Viewers, thrilled with
the return of their TV favorites, willfully ignored
the gaps in plot.
Other shows, like the
four-episode Netflix special “Gilmore Girls: A Year
in the Life” offered fans a
chance to temper the ills
of a horror final season
(Luke’s random daughter, anyone?) and creator
Amy Sherman-Palladino
a chance to air those final
magic words she teased
for years. However, while
those four words were
Fans were delighted by the
return of “Gilmore Girls.” NETFLIX
worth waiting for, the
show unintentionally exposed just how woefully
unlikeable one of its key
characters really was.
There’s no doubt that
fan loyalty drove Netflix’s
“Gilmore Girls” revival,
but it wasn’t the first
show Netflix breathed
new life into: In 2013,
cult classic “Arrested Development” was one of
the best all-cast returns;
a new season is promised
for later in 2018.
But fans can be fickle
and not all revivals find
success; “Dallas,” “Dynasty” and “Lost in Space”
have had lukewarm responses, and even with
original cast members
Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny returning,
“The X-Files” hasn’t performed as well as hoped.
While some reboots
flounder, rumors about
revivals continue to
flourish: Vin Diesel is
an executive producer
on a potential “Miami
Vice” remake, a new
“Charmed” pilot has
been shot in Vancouver, and there are even
hopeful whispers about
fan favorites like “The
Office” and “The West
Wing” coming back in
some form. The only certainty? It’s really only a
matter of when, not if,
your favorite high-rating
shows will be back.

‘Wild Wild Country’: What you need to
know if you’ve been living under a rock
The story that defies
belief and the documentary everyone is
talking about.
HENRIETTA JONES
letters@metro.us
“Wild Wild Country” is
the most talked about
show on Netflix right
now. From its masterful
cinematography to its incredible archival footage,
intriguing first-person
interviews from those
involved and meticulous
pacing, the story is so
bizarre you’ll be doublechecking facts on your
cell after each episode to
see if it’s actually real.
Here’s what you need
to know (spoilers ahead):
Who: A quiet town is
shattered by the arrival of a pro-capitalist
free-sex-advocating
religious group led by
the enigmatic Bhagwan
Shree Rajneesh, who also
like to dress in maroon.
Everyone from the local
mayor to the founder of
Nike to the producer of
“The Godfather” gets a
word in, but the most
significant player is
Ma Anand Sheela,
whose unapologetic,
sinister charm drives
the narrative.
Where: The events
unfold in rural
Oregon, when the
Rajneeshees, originally based in Pune,
India, buy the rural Big
Muddy Ranch and transform it into a new city
called Rajneeshpuram,
with its own airfield,
lakes, farmland, housing
and medical labs. In
order to control the local
government, the group
took over the small town
of Antelope (population:
40) changing its name to
Rajneesh before setting
its sights on controlling
local Wasco County.
When: The documentary
focuses on events that
took place from 1981 to
1985. During that time,
tensions about religious
sects ran
high in
Music, free love and
something sinister.
the wake of the 1978
Jonestown Massacre.
Why it’s important:
This Netflix exclusive
covers the story behind
the first major bioterror-
ist attack in American
history, one of its biggest
election and immigration fraud cases, while
also showing the fragility
of democracy, the separation of church and state
and how power corrupts.
What happens: What
doesn’t happen? The six
episodes chart the rise
and fall of Rajneeshpuram, the creation of
the city, the conflict
with locals, and the
attempt to control
Wasco County by busing in the homeless
to throw an election.
When that fails, some
members attempt to
poison the local community, begin a plot to
assassinate government
officials, and the FBI
and DA move in. The
group implodes, the
Bhagwan makes a run
for it, Sheela is arrested
and jailed, and Rajneeshpuram collapses.
Anything else?: There’s
some graphic footage
shown in part two some
might find triggering.
Bhadwan
Shree Rajneesh
holding court.
THE MOST EYE-POPPING SCENES
FROM EACH EPISODE:
Part 1: “Rajneeshpuram is a
big living opera. Sheela is the
soprano. Bhagwan, a tenor. Rajneeshpuram, the setting. Operas
are, at the end, always tragic…
I would like to say ‘People of
Oregon, think yourself lucky this
opera came your way!’”
Part 2: When the daughter of
Leo Ryan, the California Senator
assassinated in Jonestown,
is revealed to be living in
Rajneeshpuram as a follower of
the Bhagwan.
Part 3: The Rajneeshees put
sedatives in the beer they give
the homeless.
Part 4: Sheela flees to Germany;
the Bhagwan declares her a
criminal.
Part 5: Plenty, but the most
absurd is the blended beaver
water supply story.
Part 6: Rajneesh Puram is
now used as a camp for
Christian teens.

Grab the popcorn, pull

Yankees and Boston Red
Sox are at it again this
week with a three-game
series in the Bronx starting Tuesday night. While there is always
a little extra attention
set on the best rivalry
in Major League Baseball, regardless of how
either team is performing in the standings, the
second matchup of the
2018 season between
these two sides is an absolute doozy. The Red Sox (25-9)
and Yankees (24-10),
hold the best records
in Major League Baseball, New York trailing
Boston by a single game
in the American League
East. This is the latest
point of an MLB season
in which both the Yankees and Red Sox have

The Yankees shortstop

home runs and 30 RBI,
all three of those numbers the best within the
roster.
Good news for the
Yankees is that they
will avoid seeing Red
Sox ace Chris Sale during this series. Instead,
they’ll see Drew Pomeranz (6.14 ERA) and
David Price (5.11 ERA)
in the first two games of
the series before meeting Rick Porcello, who
looks to have gained his
2016 Cy Young Awardwinning form as he’s
started the season at 5-0
with a 2.14 ERA. The Yankees will
have the top of their rotation ready for the Red
Sox, starting with Luis
Severino, who is quickly
becoming one of the
best arms in the American League. The 24-yearold is 5-1 with a 2.11
ERA but has had problems with Boston in the
past with a 2-5 record
and an ERA of 4.82. The
inconsistent Masahiro
Tanaka (4.39 ERA) and
the seemingly ageless
CC Sabathia, who has
turned back the clock
this year with a 2-0 start
and 1.39 ERA, round out
the Yankees’ starting
staff in the series. Boston took two-ofthree from the Yankees
during their first meeting in April, which was
headlined by a benchesclearing melee sparked
when Joe Kelly hit Tyler
Austin during the middle game of that series.
Kelly was suspended six
games while Austin was
sidelined for five.

Lamoriello could join Isles front office
The Hall-of-Fame
general manager
might make his
way to New York
this summer.
JOE PANTORNO
joseph.pantorno@metro.us
Don’t be so quick to write
off the possibility of Lou
Lamoriello’s departure
from Toronto just yet. Despite initial reports
that claimed the Hallof-Fame general manager would stay with the
Maple Leafs as a senior
adviser after fulfilling
his three-year stint as
the team’s GM, there is
a chance that Lamoriello could be going elsewhere. On Sunday night,
TSN’s Bob McKenzie reported that there is a
“decided uptick” in talks
of Lamoriello joining
the New York Islanders.
TSN’s Darren Dreger added on Monday morn-
ing that there is a “very
real possibility” that the
75-year-old could join
New York’s front office. The Islanders are in
desperate need of an
overhaul when it comes
to management. Team
president and general
manager Garth Snow
has done little to build
the team into a legitimate contender over
the past 12 years despite
nabbing a generational
talent in John Tavares
with the No. 1 pick of
the 2009 NHL Draft. New
York has made the postseason just four times
and have made it out
of the first round once
since Snow’s arrival. Lamoriello
would
provide a tremendous
upgrade and could be
enough to get Tavares,
who will be a free agent
this summer, to stay in
New York. He built his Hall-ofFame résumé with the
New Jersey Devils, acting as the team’s general
manager for 28 years be-

ginning in 1987. Prior to his hiring,
the Devils had made the
postseason just once in
its first 13 years of existence prior to Lamoriello’s arrival. Over the
following three decades,
New Jersey made the
playoffs 21 times and
won three Stanley Cups. He helped the Maple
Leafs in the same way
during his brief spell
as GM. After not making the playoffs for 10
seasons, Toronto was
playing hockey in late
April in two of Lamoriello’s three seasons at
the helm. But with Maple Leafs
president
Brendan
Shanahan now looking for a new GM, it
looks like Lamoriello
doesn’t want to relinquish that kind of position just yet. McKenzie
stated on TSN’s Leafs
Lunch that “everyone
over there seems to
think that Lou is going
to go to the Islanders. We
can’t report that as a fact
because we haven’t done
that yet, but certainly,
there’s been a lot about
the possibility.”
Lamoriello has plenty
of connections with the
Islanders, which would
make for an easy transition. His son, Chris, has
been the assistant general manager under Snow
since 2016, allowing
for Lou and the current
Islanders GM to form a
friendship. Snow would
likely be a little more
willing to relinquish his
GM duties if it were to go
to someone well-known
like Lamoriello with a
sterling track record.

Now there’s a faster way to treat strokes
wherever they happen.
we Take the hospital to the patient.
The Mobile Stroke Treatment Unit is now in Brooklyn.
Our fully customized ambulance — complete with a CT scanner and access to a
neurologist from Weill Cornell Medicine—can travel straight to the patient, saving them
precious time and precious brain cells. If you suspect someone’s having a stroke, call 911.
Learn more at nyp.org/MSTU
So what exactly goes into
a Mobile Stroke Treatment Unit?
CT Scanner
On Board
To treat a stroke, it is imperative to know what kind of stroke it is. An immediate CT
scan can tell our neurologist whether we’re dealing with an ischemic stroke—one
caused by a clot blocking the blood flow to your brain—or a hemorrhagic stroke—
a stroke caused by a ruptured blood vessel in the brain.
Specialized
Medical Staff
Each Mobile Stroke Treatment Unit is dispatched with a highly specialized team
consisting of a critical care nurse, two certified paramedics, one CT technician,
and a neurologist in attendance virtually. The unit is equipped to access electronic
medical records and transmit images right from the back of the ambulance, so the
neurologist can review the scan results and treat patients in real time.
Life-Saving
Medication
Right on board, we carry the clot-busting medication called tPA to treat ischemic
stroke. We are also equipped with intravenous medications and strategies to help
stop the bleeding during a hemorrhagic stroke.
Be smart about treating stroke.
Your brain cells are depending on it.
Almost 2 million brain cells are destroyed every minute you go untreated after a stroke. Bringing
the Mobile Stroke Treatment Unit (MSTU) to you can save at least 40 minutes. It’s why we’re proud
to have launched the first and only MSTU on the East Coast, in partnership with Weill Cornell
Medicine, Columbia University Irving Medical Center, and the FDNY. We now have two more units
in New York City, with plans for more units in the future, so we can serve even more people in need.
To recognize common signs of a stroke, remember to B-E F-A-S-T!
"Ā
!
B: balance
E: eyes
F: FACE
a: arms
s: speech
t: time
The person may
suddenly lose their
balance.
Has the person lost
vision in one eye?
In both eyes?
Ask the person
to smile. One side
of their face
might droop.
See if the person
can lift both arms.
Does one side drift
downwards?
The person’s speech
may be slurred

Call 9-1-1,

Time is of
the essence.

To treat a stroke, it is imperative to know what kind of stroke it is. An immediate CT
scan can tell our neurologist whether we’re dealing with an ischemic stroke—one
caused by a clot blocking the blood flow to your brain—or a hemorrhagic stroke—
a stroke caused by a ruptured blood vessel in the brain.
Specialized
Medical Staff
Each Mobile Stroke Treatment Unit is dispatched with a highly specialized team
consisting of a critical care nurse, two certified paramedics, one CT technician,
and a neurologist in attendance virtually. The unit is equipped to access electronic
medical records and transmit images right from the back of the ambulance, so the
neurologist can review the scan results and treat patients in real time.
Life-Saving
Medication
Right on board, we carry the clot-busting medication called tPA to treat ischemic
stroke. We are also equipped with intravenous medications and strategies to help
stop the bleeding during a hemorrhagic stroke.
Be smart about treating stroke.
Your brain cells are depending on it.
Almost 2 million brain cells are destroyed every minute you go untreated after a stroke. Bringing
the Mobile Stroke Treatment Unit (MSTU) to you can save at least 40 minutes. It’s why we’re proud
to have launched the first and only MSTU on the East Coast, in partnership with Weill Cornell
Medicine, Columbia University Irving Medical Center, and the FDNY. We now have two more units
in New York City, with plans for more units in the future, so we can serve even more people in need.
